@juliana I heard that like the line from 'Space Oddity - 🎶Apples to apples, dust to dusty, we know Major Tom is musty... 🎶

The bunnies are also trying to deal with today's record high temps.

You could think of Twitter as a kind of convention atmosphere. It's useful for putting your work in front of enthusiasts, for networking, for building a professional profile, but the same qualities that facilitate all that also make it hostile toward actually doing creative work.

Seems like the perception is that Mastodon is an inferior platform for creatives because it's less powerful as a promotional tool. But that risks reducing creative work to its commercial function. In many ways, Mastodon is better for discussing creative work.

This makes feel a whole lot more chill about my ever-growing TBR pile.

Are you using Mastodon through a computer?

Do you wish there was a multi-column TweetDeck-style interface?

There is! It's called the "advanced web interface" and you can activate it any time you want. It lets you add many specialised columns, subscribe to hashtags and all kinds of stuff suited to large wide displays.

Log into the website, go to Preferences > Enable Advanced Web Interface, tick the box and click "Save Changes".

(To restore the default single column interface, do the same thing but untick the box instead.)

This used to be the default interface on Mastodon, and very old articles about the platform will have screenshots of the multicolumn interface.

@pixouls @Nezchan Very, very, very wrong. I was there. I can still remember the first time I saw CSS demoed. It was in a movie theater (some company, MS maybe, was doing some sort of promotional simulcast all over the country) and it blew my mind more than EEAAO did. I was staggered.

@lkhrs I'm loving Obsidian but my requirements aren't quite so stringent.

There used to be a lot of talk about how "addictive" Facebook is, but really, the company's "addictiveness" primarily springs from its ability to defend its walled garden and keep you hostage, by making the price of leaving severing contact with all the customers, communities and friends who stay behind.
